Alkaline Water Overview—What Is It?

Alkaline Water has many ideal properties which offer amazing health benefits. We would like to share those benefits with you and your family.

Alkaline Water is a Powerful Antioxidant.

Research shows that antioxidants have the following health benefits:

  • Anti-aging properties
  • Detoxifying effects
  • Immune support
  • Free radical protection

The Purest and Freshest Alkaline Water

Imagine having the ability to take normal tap water and give it a special charge that can neutralize free radicals and give you the benefits mentioned above. Alkaline ionized water, or Tyent Water™ has a negative charge called oxidation reduction potential (-ORP). The ORP properties of alkaline water are known by many as simply “antioxidants”.

To explain further, normal body functions cause high or rising oxidation in the body, which is not good. To fight against the oxidation, alkaline water’s negative ORP charge literally hinders the oxidation process by counteracting any rising oxidation effect. Ionized water essentially rejuvenates us. A glass of alkaline water brings us as close as we can ever hope to get to a Fountain of Youth, as incredible as that may sound.

Is having gallons of alkaline water flowing freely just a dream?

Not any more!

The purest, freshest and healthiest alkaline water is also ionized, and it is created by a Tyent Water Ionizer that hooks to your tap.

Alkaline Water vs. Regular Water—A True Story! By Michele Steffney, Alkaline Water Expert

Who wants the best water on earth? I do! I do!


Does it exist?


Yes! Absolutely! It is Tyent ionized alkaline water. But, before you just take my word for it, let’s break it down by one type of water at a time.


First, let me just explain a bit about my experience with water. When I was about 9 years old…

I used to see Culligan commercials. These commercials used scare tactics that showed all of the dangerous contaminants in your tap water

Whoa, they were scary! I remember going to my dad about it, and he just shrugged his shoulders and pretty much ignored me. I suppose it did not scare him, but it definitely sparked an interest in me and a mission to find the healthiest water on earth..

Luckily for all of us, water has come a long way since those commercials

Today, there are loads of ways to get your water and new ways popping up daily. Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane, shall we?

  • 1

    The obvious classics since the prehistoric days include water from natural lakes, rivers or springs.

  • 2

    Well water

  • 3

    City water

  • 4

    Bottled distilled water for use in chemistry and other applications (not for drinking)

  • 5

    Bottled spring water

  • 6

    Bottled purified water

  • 7

    Flavored waters with fizz and without

  • 8

    Gravity pitchers

  • 9

    Basic household filters including whole house systems, faucet filters and water softeners

  • 10

    Reverse osmosis systems

  • 11

    Non-electric alkalizers/ionizers

  • 12

    Electric water ionizer machines

Choices, choices and more choices! But don’t fret because since many of the choices listed do not meet our standards, let’s not waste time. Since our goal is to find the healthiest water, the natural choices such as rivers and streams can be eliminated right away because of pollution. Moving on, we will eliminate non-treated well water since it needs to be further filtered, and of course, any basic filter just won’t meet our high expectations.

Now that those subpar water choices are out of the way, let’s concentrate on what’s left and what’s still questionably healthy.

Alkaline Water vs. Bottled Water:

As funny as it may seem, I still see people loading large, plastic wrapped crates of bottled water into their shopping carts. I feel sorry that so many people still do not know that they would probably be better off just drinking unfiltered tap water. Sad but true in most cases.

Although there are a few very expensive, semi-healthy bottled water brands on the market, most of the bottled water companies take plastic bottles and fill them with plain-old filtered tap water. Some of it is packed in such cheap plastic containers that you can smell or even taste plastic when you drink it.

Does this plastic-smelling water sound healthy to you?

I didn’t think so! Besides, it’s not good for the environment or your pocketbook either.

To top it off, most bottled water is surprisingly acidic, and some can even be contaminated with microorganisms that grow from inventory that sits for so long in hot trucks. Pretty gross and very inconvenient, if you ask me! Furthermore, who has the space for all of those clunky bottles anyway?

Score for bottled water:

Alkaline Water vs. Tap Water:

To me, this topic is a no brainer, but who am I to judge?

To start, tap water is mandated to have neutral pH* which from a pH standpoint is okay—meaning it’s not going to harm you, but it won’t help you either. For me, I want to drink a healthy pH of 9.5 to 10 to help keep my body better balanced. However, I want more than just a healthy pH, and you should too.

Here’s what you are missing when you drink tap water over alkaline water:

  • 1A healthy pH
  • 2Better hydration

    - since it does not go through an electrolysis process

  • 3Purity

    - most tap water has contaminants. See what’s in your water here in Tyent’s Free Water Report

  • 4Antioxidants

    - there is nothing in tap water to help keep your body from dangerously oxidizing

Score for tap water:

Alkaline Water from a Water Ionizer vs. Bottled Alkaline Water:

If you are traveling or in a pinch then bottled alkaline water is just fine. The pH is usually sufficient. However, it costs up to $3 a bottle or more, which in my book is way too much to pay, especially since it’s not as high-quality as the ionized water that comes fresh from a Tyent unit.

When bottled alkaline water is manufactured, there is a packaging process that is required by law that kills the healthy antioxidant properties of the water. So since the antioxidant properties are one of the top reasons to drink ionized alkaline water, it fails in my book.

*There are some regions of exception due to municipal source water.

Score for bottled alkaline water:

Overall Analysis:

Water from an electric water ionizer is still the best choice. It has all of the healthy properties your body needs, so in my book, it’s really the only choice.

The hassle of buying bottled alkaline water

The hassle of buying alkaline water is based on the lack of convenience. In many regions, bottled alkaline water is only sold through health food stores or can only be found online. Therefore, you will need to take an extra trip or step to purchase it.

Aside from making a special trip, you will also need to load it into your cart, lug it back to your car, drag it into your home and then store it until you need it.

The cost of buying bottled alkaline water

The cost of buying bottled alkaline water is about 50 times more than the cost of owning a water ionizer. A glass of water from a Tyent water ionizer costs about 6 cents a glass. Plus, you will not have to pay for the gas to make that special trip to the health food store just to buy it. Or, pay the high cost of shipping.

The environmental cost of buying bottled alkaline water has a high price tag as well. There are a lot of hidden costs and environmental factors that you may have not considered like these:

  • The cost of fuel used to make and transport the plastic bottles
  • The energy used for manufacturing
  • The cost of fuel in transporting heavy liquids in bottles across the country to distributors
  • The cost of your fuel to transport the bottles to your home
  • The cost of recycling or the environmental cost from taking up more landfill space

The shortcomings of buying bottled alkaline water

The shortcomings of buying bottled alkaline water over owning a water ionizer are vast. Aside from the whopping costs and tremendous hassles of buying bottled alkaline water, you will not get the same health benefits either. Sure, bottled alkaline water is healthier than ordinary bottled water, but it does not have as many antioxidants as alkaline water that is fresh from your water ionizer.

Plus, you are limited to the pH level that comes in the bottle. Whereas, with a Tyent unit you can choose the pH level that you want. Remember, there are so many money saving uses for the various pH levels available in your Tyent unit.

As a gift to you, here is a free E-book on the many uses of the water available from a Tyent water ionizer.

Negative Ions in Alkaline Water

The other great quality of Ionized Water is hydroxyl ions. Hydroxyl ions are oxygen molecules with an extra electron attached to them. Hydroxyl ions scavenge for free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that can cause us damage. When a hydroxyl antioxidant comes in contact with a free radical, it donates its extra electron and neutralizes the free radical. The result is a body with more oxygen and therefore potentially more energy.

Oxygen is one of the most exhausted nutrients in our body because of our diet and the Earth's oxygen-depleted environment today. Oxygen carries away acid waste from body tissue. Oxygen is vital to human health, and is our most important nutrient. A tall glass of strong, ionized alkaline water first thing in the morning is a great way to start your day.

Is Alkaline Water Good or Bad?

orange-with-juice

Since alkaline water has such a high antioxidant content and because so many doctors recommend antioxidants, it is very good for you. When you compare alkaline water to orange juice you will find that fresh squeezed orange juice has a negative ORP of 250, and we can only drink a few glasses of fresh orange juice per day.

We can drink as much Ionized Water as we wish to in a day. Plus, unlike orange juice, ionized alkaline water has no calories. Many people drink as much as two gallons of Ionized Water per day for their health. So how much alkaline water does your body need?

Alkaline Water Ionizer Benefits

Ionized alkaline water will contain thousands of tiny bubbles when it pours out of a Tyent water ionizer. Those bubbles are hydroxyl ions, which are the reason for the negative ORP. ORP is the most fragile aspect of ionized water, lasting only a maximum of 18-24 hours, which is why it is important to consume ionized water when it is fresh out of your Tyent water ionizer.

Acidic Foods

The human body tends to be acidic because our diet is comprised of cooked foods, pasteurized or otherwise processed foods. Acidity in the body is the root cause of many ailments, some chronic. Soft drinks are the most acidic substance a person can put into his/her body.

This acidic condition is very unhealthy. Before alkaline water, the only way to combat acidity was to eat high alkaline foods like raw fruits and vegetables. Many find this type of diet to be difficult, if not impossible to achieve. Since our body is about 80% water, consuming alkaline water is a much simpler way to achieve an ideal pH balance in the body. Check out these Top 7 Alkaline Foods.

Alkaline Water Effects—It’s Six Times More Hydrating Than Conventional Water.

transparent water drop

Water makes up over 80% of our bodies and is essential for all living creatures. Ionized Water is fundamentally different from conventional water. That is, the size and shape of the water molecule cluster is reduced in size and changed to a hexagonal shape, which allows the water cluster to be absorbed quickly and easily. Lack of water can cause chronic cellular dehydration (or not providing the body with sufficient water), a condition which leaves the body's cells in a perpetual state of weakness and defense. Most people simply do not drink enough water (at least half our weight in ounces) to keep ourselves properly hydrated and therefore healthy.

Minerals That Are Ionized Are More Bio-available.

The body can absorb ionized minerals much more efficiently and can therefore make use of them where they are needed throughout the body. Minerals are some of the most important nutrients the body needs, yet mineral deficiency is common. Drinking Ionized Alkaline Water is an efficient and effective way for the body to get its minerals. You will find that Tyent USA is the most popular and respected water ionizer brand in the industry. Check out our media page to see who is on board with us.

Call it an alkaline water ionizer, dispenser, generator or machine—either way, it’s still the best way to get alkaline water

But before you jump online and buy the cheapest machine, you need to pay careful attention to the quality of the water ionizer to protect your safety. It’s important to shop around and do your research. Here is a quick list of what to pay attention to when shopping for an ionizer.

1) Water ionizers use the process of electrolysis to separate normal “stable” water into “unstable” positively charged acid water and negatively charged alkaline water. Only use an electric water ionizer, otherwise you will not get all of the benefits.

2) While pH gets all the attention, it is the Oxidation Reduction Potential “ORP” that is important to improving and maintaining your health (the antioxidants). ORP is a measure of the electrical charge in the water, and plays a key role in eliminating acid from the body, which, in turn, helps raise the pH of the body and allows the body to heal itself. Your body performs the miracles, not the water. The water simply gives your body a chance to work properly. A machine that offers the most plates with the largest surface size produces a stronger ORP overall.

3) The amount of time that the water is in contact with the ionizer plates makes a difference, so look for large plates, and at least 9 of them. The brand that you choose can play a major role in determining performance by having more plates, larger plates, and solid/mesh hybrid plates.

4) Pay attention to the amount of current (wattage) that runs through the actual plates during the ionization process. This has a significant ability to effect performance.

Here’s a simple checklist for purchasing a water ionizer:

-The amount of power that is passed over the plates
-The size of the plates
-The number of plates (should be at least 9)
-The quality of the materials of the plates (platinum coated titanium is safest and most durable)
-Warranty: Some companies such as Tyent USA offer a lifetime warranty, which is worth the investment when you consider the cost of purchasing a new unit when a substandard machine breaks.
